BBQ not great, but not as bad as expected

We had a large group (25+), and the waitress was able to efficiently take and place our orders with a handheld device. After reading the negative reviews, I had to try the pulled pork and see if it was as bad as some said. I didn't think the sauce was flavorful, so I added some hot sauce to my... read more

First ate here 20 years ago, it had a lot of folks coming in back then. Tried it a couple weeks ago and they were out of St. Louis ribs (I think its their specialty) so I had the baby backs … and they were terrific! Lunch special was about $12 and you get 2 sides so I thought the... More

I recently met a girl friend at this place while traveling through Florida. I had my 2 Chihuahuas with me and ordered 1/2 pound of sliced brisket to go. They gave me shaved beef, but didn't say anything. Then I saw my pups wouldn't eat it. When I tasted it, it was rotten! I was sick all night throwing up... More

This is a good place to eat. We have been here many times, the food has always been good and the service is great. The place is spotless and never had a bad meal. Worth a try better than sonnys

Been trying to sample the taste of Big Rascal's BBQ for some time now. Today we hit the jackpot! Only one waitress, but was she good (all electronic ordering from a touch-pad) drinks out in record time, along with ordered jalapino poppers (very good) then came the meal, smoked BBQ Beans, Cole Slaw, and (wait for it!) Half-a-slab of ribs.... More

We were travelling north on interstate 75 and we were hungry but really did not want a lot to eat............BUT BBQ always gets our attention...............saw a sign and stopped. It was raining VERY hard and the parking lot was empty when we arrived................usually an empty parking lot, even at 7:00 PM is not a good sign. But, the building looked... More

Stopped in here for a late lunch on the way home from a weekend vacation. Tired of eating fast food we decided to try the local fare. We both ordered the pulled pork lunch plate priced at $8.49 with 2 sides...I chose coleslaw and macaroni salad, my husband mashed sweet potatoes and wanted potato salad but since they were out,...

Just tried for first time,never again.service was less than ok, food was not good,fries overcooked and dried out and cold,beans tasted like canned and I think the pulled pork tasted just like the kind in the plastic tub from the grocery store. Three lunches w/3 iced teas $40 so not worth even that.
